Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At WorksOfOurHands we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, WorksOfOurHands collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. WorksOfOurHands’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WorksOfOurHands’ visitors use its website. From time to time, WorksOfOurHands may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
WorksOfOurHands also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. WorksOfOurHands only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to WorksOfOurHands’s websites choose to interact with WorksOfOurHands in ways that require WorksOfOurHands to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WorksOfOurHands gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive WorksOfOurHands updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, WorksOfOurHands collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WorksOfOurHands. WorksOfOurHands does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
WorksOfOurHands may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, WorksOfOurHands may monitor the most popular pages on the WorksOfOurHands.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. WorksOfOurHands may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WorksOfOurHands does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
WorksOfOurHands discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WorksOfOurHands’s behalf or to provide services available at WorksOfOurHands’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using WorksOfOurHands’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WorksOfOurHands will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, WorksOfOurHands discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WorksOfOurHands believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WorksOfOurHands, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an WorksOfOurHands website and have supplied your email address, WorksOfOurHands may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with WorksOfOurHands and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. WorksOfOurHands takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer.

This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by WorksOfOurHands and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
